In David Gordon Green's new sequel, Michael Myers is the embodiment of pure evil.

Universal Pictures has released a behind-the-scenes look at the new Halloween sequel, featuring some commentary from actress Jamie Lee Curtis, John Carpenter himself, and director David Gordon Green. Footage from the movie is also on display in the video, showing a little bit more of a few of the scenes we've seen in the first and second theatrical trailers.

Of particular interest in this look at Halloween are the comments from Carpenter, who hails the new film as being "as good as [he's] seen since [they] did the first movie." That is high praise from the master of horror himself. In the new movie, Myers is ruthless, relentless, unpredictable, and quite simply, "the embodiment of evil." Take it from Curtis, who explains it best in her own words.

"It is intense, just brutal."

Halloween sees Jamie Lee Curtis return to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. The film also stars Judy Green (Ant-Man, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (Replicate, Orange is the New Black), Will Patton (Armageddon), and Virginia Gardner (Runaways), with Nick Castle (Escape From New York) returning as Michael Myers.

The film is directed by David Gordon Green and will release on October 19th.
